South Africa’s National Prosecuting Authority is conducting a “thorough investigation” to determine whether the inquest into former ANC leader Chief Albert Luthuli’s death should be reopened. News24 reports that the official version of the Nobel Peace Prize winner’s death is that he died in 1967 after he was hit by a train on a railway bridge close to the home he had been confined to by the apartheid regime in Groutville, KwaZulu-Natal. His family however never believed this version of events and pushed for an investigation into his death.
